A WOODEN cubby house, rope walk and large climbing structure are some of the equipment proposed for a playground in Landsdale.

The City of Wanneroo is seeking feedback on a draft concept plan for development of Hardcastle Park.

The plan includes a central playground with a bird’s nest style swing, slide, climbing net and stepped log, as well as a second play area for younger children.

Both playgrounds will have nature play elements and are to be fenced.

A picnic shelter and seating are part of the design, as well as trees to be planted for shade.

The City’s supporting information said the space available for development was restricted by environmental factors on the reserve.

“The existing bushland on the reserve is classified as a threatened ecological community, which is one of the highest levels for retention,” it said.

“Subsequently the design of the reserve has been undertaken to retain this bushland while maximising the amenity within the reserve.”

People can provide feedback on the plan to City staff when they visit the park on Wednesday from 5pm to 6pm and the Landsdale Residents Association meeting at Warradale Community Centre from 7pm.

A survey is also available at www.wanneroo.wa.gov.au until November 20.
